"for as long as we choose"
First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Mark Stanhope said ministers would have to "reprioritise" - making cuts in firepower elsewhere - if the Nato-led
campaign lasts beyond the UK's existing six-month commitment. However, the head of the Armed Forces responded to the comments by insisting Britain
could sustain the military operation "for as long as we choose".
Shouldn't it be more like "For as long as needed"?
"We are perhaps a few weeks from 'culmination' (military exhaustion)," a senior official in a Nato member state told Sky News. Small wonder that the
US secretary of defence, Robert Gates, called on Spain, Holland and Turkey to join strike missions. He also asked Germany and Poland, so far sitting
on the sidelines, to help out, too. The war in Libya cost the US $664m up to the end of May. By the end of the year this could rise to a billion
dollars. The UK is spending £6m a week.
So there is already a lot of money being spent on this war. But what makes me really suspicious is the announcement (AGAIN) of the special
relationship between the US and UK. We always seem to step things up a bit after these quite regular announcements. My guess is that there is going to
be false flag attacks much like 9/11 in the US and/or the UK very soon.
The wars in the middle east are going to be kicking up a few gears soon. The UN 'Peace keeping' forces are waiting for the right moment to make a full
scale attempt at a fully 'Democratic' middle east..
